Goodness me this is majestic and reflective of the power of Amun. What a place it would have been. We are lucky to access what would have been restricted space to some powerful priests linked to Pharaoh. Explore and check out the glyphs.

Amun-Ra was the god of gods in ancient Egypt, especially during the New Kingdom. His home was Karnak from where the god and the priests created their network of power all over Egypt and the known world of this time.

It is an extraordinary heritage from a long gone past. You feel so small, walking around this temple.... and it's only a part of what you can find in such a relatively small area... loved it
